On Day 2 of Tour De Jasper, I woke up a little stiff. But after some coffee, that was soon lost!. I was all eager to go as it was my Birthday and I felt that riding my bicycle was the best way to celebrate it! I left Purden Campsite when I 'thought' that everyone was on their way.
There were some interesting cloud formations that day..

After the stop, we rode on until the pit stop at Slim Creek. There was a shortage of water at this stop, so I refilled my bottles in the creek. I also dipped my head in the ice cold water to cool off, and it soon dried when I started riding again.
It was a long day, but not as bad as I expected. It always seemed to be longer in previous years, but I have the route memorized by now, so I know exactly where the La Salle Lake campground is located at.
As it was on my bucket list, I then got to go for a ride on a Tandem. It was scarier when you are not in control, but I am sure with practice, it gets easier. Still, it was a great thrill to get to ride on one, next time maybe I get to try it on the front seat!

After the tandem ride, I then enjoyed a nice cold beer. What a wonderful ending to my Birthday! I am so glad that I got to ride again on my Birthday, this was my third Birthday spent on Tour De Jasper.
